You can get to Samobor from Zagreb by bus, around 45 mins. The bus can be taken from the main bus station. if you are in the centre of Zagreb, take the tram no. 6 to the bus station and switch to the bus. Decided to make the day trip as we were running out of things to do in Zagreb. Samobor is well known for creating the cream cake and it did not disappoint. It took us about half an hour to climb up the hill to get to the castle. To get to the point to make the ascent, we walked along the river. The climb up is not suitable for the elderly as there are loose stones abound and is an incline. The castle is an open air ruin and gave a panoramic view of Samobor. We were advised to take a different route back to the town and we did. It was a much gentler downhill path and being autumn, we enjoyed the lovely colours. Would strongly suggest this visit if there is time to spare.

We spent a few hours in Samobor today. It’s a lovely place to visit. The highlight was the hike up to the ruins of the castle. The way up is less than half an hour, not too difficult. Part of the way is steeper than the rest. The major difficulty is slipping when the path is wet. There are several trails to follow, not marked particularly well. There are enough people walking up and down to ask for directions. It’s fun to roam around the ruins of the castle, wondering how they managed to build a three story edifice so high up. The views are lovely. A nice way to spend part of a day.

I probably picked a wrong day to visit the place. It's a good 15 minutes walk and then 15 minutes hike from Samobor Museum. Hike is not that difficult but might be tough for not so active people. Trail to the castle is lush green. There is a water fountain on the way. Water seems to be drinkable. Atleast I drank it with no issues. Castle ruins are literally takenover by mother nature. Tress and plant are growing everywhere. It looks mesmerising. During my visit to the castle, I seemed to be the only tourist there with 4 teenagers. They seemed like locals as all were carrying school backpacks. They asked me to leave as I moved towards the corner of the castle where they were sitting and enjoying their beers. When I ignored them, they threw a firecracker at me. It bursted with no harm to me. Obviously, I left after that. Even if I ever go back there, I wont be going alone.
